Dubya has probably ruined Republican chances to retain the presidency, but Hillary might be sufficiently polarizing to offset the damage if the Dems choose to put her on the ballot. Really, there are no dominant candidates for either party at this time, IMO.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Unfortunately, this only applies to the Americans!! For the rest of us, we need a 'Who Cares' response!!

If God said it, then that settles it!!

You mean the entire world doesn't focus on the glamorous life in the old US of A?

Only from a negative perspective - how we're ruining world culture, how we aren't giving them enough, or giving them too much, or being too 'world involved' or too isolationist … or whatever.

Naw - this type of speculation is always good for controversy, so I'll just stir it up a bit for the international crew so they don't feel left out

I'm hoping for Hillary; too many men in suits in politics today. People in general are losing interest in politics, and even though getting a female president won't solve that over night, I personally think it would be refreshing.

As for Hilary - remember that she was responsible for some of the ideas behind the highly socialist stuff Bill tried to do in his first two years (when he had democratic controlled senate & house) - it has only been to further her own agenda that she has appeared to moderate.

That is a general thing I hate - I have watched the former governor of our state (Romney) try to appease the ultra-right wingnuts to gain favor … which makes me dislike him. Running based on what he has actually been doing here - very moderate stuff, really populist - would have been better for him and the country.

That's right—not only that, most of them are lawyers as well.

I am not an American, but I would go for Obama for two reasons. First, I would like to see a democrat this time around. Democrats appear much closer to European politics than the Republicans. After the Bush flop, I believe the releation with Europe needs to be improved.

Also I would say Obama, primarily because he belongs to a minority. I believe that allows him to greater understand the rights of minorities. There's alot of intolerant crap going on over there which I feel should be below western society. I would say that Hillary Clinton is an alternative, but her opinion about computergames are not so nice.

Obama doesn't stand much chance imo. partly muslim and went on catholic schools what isn't really a good thing for conservative America. I think Hilary has the largest chance to be the next candidate for the democrats, but I'm not sure she'd win. The former major of NY is a republican but still someone from the city (so not to conservative). This makes him more acceptable for the midfield. I believe as I expressed on the Dot before, that about 80% of the people already know for whom they are gonna vote -> it's a fifty/fifty for the both parties and it's that previously mentioned midfield that needs to be convinced.

Still I voted for Hilary, also for the reasons Maylander already expressed

so very, very tired (Star Trek XI quote according to the Simpsons)

I think that Hillary has the biggest chance to win the election. She is somewhat popular and she´s female (first female president ever if she should win) and huge parts of the population are at least partially unhappy with the republicans and/or G.W. Bush.
People also tend to vote for a change after one party reigned for some time and this was the second successive presidency of a republican candidate.
